Finding classroom activities to teach about the respiratory system can be difficult, especially when you don’t have science textbooks! I couldn’t find digestive system kid-friendly text or interactive digestive activities. So I finally decided to just create my own unit.
You can go deep into study, or skim the surface. The activities are fun and engaging. Students love it every year!
Lesson plans for the Respiratory System
The unit includes 10 days of complete lesson plans. Activities require minimal prep. All materials all included.
Respiratory System Facts for Kids
Why do science textbooks not cover the standards or what you need to teach?! That is so frustrating as a teacher, knowing how much is spent on textbooks. I wrote this respiratory system fact book because I couldn’t find the necessary informational text.
This fact book covers the respiratory functions, parts of the respiratory system, creating, and respiratory health. I like to read a page of the book each day and then follow it up with engaging activities on the topic.
